Will write up a birth story either now...or after Kaidens next feeding...its really up to him...

We got home yesterday after an extra day in the hospital cause Kaiden had mild jaundice ( enugh for the lights)...feels good to be home, didn't sleep well the first 2 nights because of well, labor, then umm, excitement...and the last night, poor Kaiden was miserable because of the bili lights, so we might have gotten 2 hours...the whole time, I was thinking that except for the bili lights, he was so calm...but little decided to surprise us last night = OMG, it was rough...he fed for about 5 hours...constant...and I was a zombie by morning...so finally, we swaddled him the right way (tip to all of you who are PG now, get Happiest baby on the block and when you swaddle, do it TIGHT!), and Matt took him and I was able to sleep for 3 hours...then fed him, swaddled again (the right way) and was able to shower (YEA!) and sleep for another 2 hours - amazing what 5 hours of sleep will do!!

So, feeling great today...last day my parents were in town, Matt's mom is here till Monday...wanted to show you a few more pics (as you guys who ave me on FB probably already know - my mom has gone completely picture crazy - and video crazy)...

Monday night - so swollen!:

Kaiden has a ton of hair - literally, while his head =was popping out, the doc and nurses were entertaining themselves by giving him a mohawk and laughing about it!! I think the mohawk looks much better when he is out!

I like this one - still hospital, on Monday night:

i swear I cant get over how cute

Yesterday - frst day home...so tired and Kaiden looks terrible cause the sunglasses for the bili rubin lights just wrecked a terrible rash all over his eyes...

Tonihght - I'm clean and I've slept, Kaiden looks great cause his eyes healed, and Matt is always cute

Yet again, I cannot see his cute face at work because pics are blocked! I am so glad you guys are home!!!! Sorry you haven't gotten much sleep, but it sounds like the swaddling will help.

Glad you are home and getting some much needed sleep. I love the last two pics!!! The one with just you and Kaiden is absolutely adorable. You look AMAZING and truly glowing! I would totally have to second the Happiest Baby on the Block book...saved our lives!!! We also watched the video at the hospital and that really helped us too! WOW you are my hero...a 5 hour feeding?!?! You rock girl!

Thank you Julka for my beautifully, perfect siggy!!

Congrats on the little guy. I'm glad you're all home together.

at the tight swaddling. My best swaddles are still when the kids are being ridiculous in the middle of the night and I'm super frustrated. I can swaddle so tight then and they are much calmer. I think swaddling may have been invented to keep a mother sane.

Thank you peimum for my siggie

He is absolutely precious! Too stinking cute and I LOVE the hair! Megan still has next to none at 3 months old, so I'm totally jealous.

I totally remember those early days of not-enough-fragmented sleep - ugh! Enjoy your little guy.

such an adorable family. I'm so glad that you were able to get five hours of sleep. I'm hoping that it only increases every night. swaddling is a very challenging task. I've been enjoying teaching moms in the nicu how to do it.
